Abstract:
This paper elaborates on remarks made at the American Economic Association meetings, January 1995, in Washington D.C., at a Panel Discussion on the Clinton administration's trade policy. The Panel included two highly distinguished trade experts: the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Laura Tyson, and Anne Krueger, the President-elect of the American Economic Association; and Rudiger Dornbusch, the well known macroeconomist. I have used this occasion to raise some uncommon questions and to provide a frank and at times critical commentary on the current trends in US trade policy precisely because we have correctly applauded the policy because of its freetrade thrust while ignoring its downside which requires correction.
